Becoming Hattie, Leicester Square Theatre - Review

Blessed with a female writer, director and performer (Mhairi Grealis, Mary Swan and Ashley Christmas respectively), Becoming Hattie has its finger on the pulse of how women feel about their body image. In this one-woman show, parallels are drawn between the two women that Christmas plays: Hattie Jacques – a famous comedic actor from the 1950-80s who she greatly admires, and 'Jo' – a struggling actress who only gets cast for small parts such as cleaners and other members of society's underclass.

SPIRAL, The Bedford, Balham - Review

Joining the growing ranks of theatre companies hosting scratch nights in London, Free Rayne Artists' Spiral is a welcome addition to southwest London. Run by Rebecca Rayne and Matthew Frener, their last sold out event, which ran at The Bedford in Balham, showcased seven short plays. Some were of an intimate, personal nature while others certainly had something to say about the world today.

It comes to the Soho Theatre this July and is described as 'a chilling and powerful modern Medea about motherhood and class, taking an unapologetic look at the single young mum, the one already judged before she’s even opened her mouth.'

Pint Sized, Pleasance Theatre - Review

The last time the Pint Sized event took place in 28th September 2015, the plays were performed at the Jermyn Street Theatre in the heart of the West End. The second Pint Sized event, while having to forego a more central location, has grown exponentially by hosting the event at the main house of the Pleasance Theatre in London. On this occasion, eight short plays or excerpts were performed – all very different other and distinct from the West End selection.
